Default Oblivion Fans - Qarl's Texture Pack III out!

Qarl has released the final version of his TPIII, with some some improvements over the beta release. It can be found here:

http://planetelderscrolls.gamespy.co...Detail&id=2363

This guy does amazing work - be warned that it takes some hefty hardware to run this.

Not yet, Qarl says he wants to control where its hosted so he can make changes easier, if needed. He did mention he was going to have it hosted at Elricm.com at some point.

Here is the thread he posts at:

I'm downloading it now, and it's only 850MB, the 2GB on that page must be an error.

warning

it looks like the fileplanet mirror uploads are not finished, my 852MB file was corrupt (UK mirror), but the east/west coast servers appear to have 1.67GB.

Fairly easy to set up - once you extract the files you simply overwrite the same ones in the Oblivion/Data folder. There is no mod to install - this simply overwrites existing textures with ultra-sexy versions. The supplied readme should be pretty straightforward. I am only at 50% right now so I will probably have to install this when I get up.

I used an early version of this and it looked great, this looks even better.

Here are the comparison shots. They are animated gifs (the ones on the Planet Elder Scrolls page don't work):

It doesn't overwrite any of the originals though. Almost all of Oblivion's resources are packed in .BSA files.

I'm a bit surprised that he hasn't made an .OMOD version of this though considering how many files it replaces. If you have any previously installed texture or model packs this will overwrite any similar files. If you don't have anything like that though, its a quick and easy install and delete if you decide you don't want it.
